Nancy’s Last Nerve

Trump just can’t help himself. If he had moderated his behavior, he could have made it to the 2020 election without dealing with a formal impeachment. Instead he removed all of the moderating forces around him and tries to run the government like it was his business. The result is: House launches formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

National security lawyer warns that Trump is spinning Ukraine as cover:

Bradley Moss, who works for the firm representing the whistle-blower urged everyone to stop and figure out where all the leaks have come from. Hint: Not the whistle-blower.

A lawyer for the firm representing the whistle-blower, Moss had some warnings for Ali Velshi’s viewers.

“Well, the president’s certainly trying to frame a narrative here and there’s certainly been the selective leaks of what the substance of the disclosure may or may not have been. There’s been no leak from the whistle-blower and from the legal team representing the whistle-blower confirming any of the details of what actually was the full universe of claims outlined in that whistle-blower complaint and that validated by the inspector general of the intelligence community,” Moss pointed out.

Or in simpler terms, all of the stories out there haven’t been from the people who actually know what’s in the substance of the complaint. They’ve come from current and former administration officials, who are always quoted as anonymous sources.

“People need to wait and they need to let all of the information to come out before they render judgment on what happened here,” he added.

Trump and company are presenting the Ukrainian extortion attempt as the entire issue, but Mr. Moss is hinting that there is more in the actual complaint. It would appear that strong-arming the Ukrainian government to create a scandal about the Biden family may be the least of the sins cited by the whistle-blower.

Twitter is going insane over it! And the trol’s (which it’s difficiult to tell if they are Russian/Ukraine or just RWNJ yank’s. Their command of English is equally bad (or use G’s Translate, which is also bad).

UK has it easy… looks like Boris went to far & stabbed himself too often. Even his own party can’t stand him! I wish it were so easy to get rid of Trumpelstiltskin & Scummo! Murdock’s head would 🤯 or he’d have a stroke. A 4-way win! *sigh* I can dream… 😔

Well, at least literature teachers/lecturers/professors will have contemporary examples of “hubris” to point to when discussing Greek drama. Trump, Johnson, Morrison, & Australopithecus rupertus all certainly qualify as the arrogant assholes the Greeks were referring to.

3 Kryten42 { 09.28.19 at 1:57 am }

Yeah! The old Greeks & Romans have nothing on this gang of ignorant, thoughtless robber barons. At least the old Greeks & Romans were smart enough not to get caught, unless that was part of the plan. Especially as back then, getting caught guaranteed loosing one’s head or being crucified. There is something to be said for the “good ol’ day’s”! *sigh*

You probably read the Miami Herald, so saw this… I tweeted about it.

In lurid sidelight to Epstein scandal, Alan Dershowitz asks judge to dismiss defamation case

Been tweeting about those being forgotten in all tye Impeachment hysteria (and even scored a couple Trolls in some tweets! Yayyyy… I did have some fun! Then blocked a couple. It really pisses them off!😈😏

Couple trolls in this tweet thread… I blocked one as I’d said what I wanted to say, & in typical RWNJ/Russian Troll (I can’t decide which, but probably US RWNJ) fashion, he completely ignores anything anyone says. The other I’ll let hang herself for awhile & it amuses my GeekResist & VeteranResists friends. (They are in a vulnerable position being US citizens, so I *feed* the Trolls for them.) 😉

Anyway, I posted a few tweets about reality Winner, this is the latest:

Dershowitz is not worth the energy required to read about him. He is well past his “use by” date and has forgotten all that he once knew about the Constitution and the law. He no longer has a reputation to lose.

It is time to sharpen the tines of the pitch forks, bind up the torches, warm the tar, locate the feathers, and gather the top rail of fences to deal with the GOP. They have sold their souls to Trump and need help to exorcise him from the body politic before his corruption metastasizes.

That CNN thread is pathetic. If you read the documents for yourself the facts are there. People just refuse to believe they were conned, which is what Trump relies on to continue his scam. Sad, really, but they will get what they deserve.

Reality Winner lacked the rank to do what she did without being punished. She also lacked the tradecraft to protect herself. She deserves a pardon.

It isn’t Clarke & Dawe, but this ABC skit is pretty funny.

5 Kryten42 { 09.29.19 at 12:05 am }

Agree, with all that. I had a similar feeling about Reality. It would have to be a Presidential Pardon though? She was tried on a Federal crime. So a State Pardon wouldn’t be possible. That won’t happen unless the USA gets a sane, honest POTUS.🤷🏾‍♂️🙄

That CNN thread has attracted even more lunatics. The entire cult of Trump Worshipers are in full on terror mode! They know somewhere inside they are about to lose their chosen one & they were totally conned. They will do what they always do… Pretend it never happened & choose another.🤷🏾‍♂️🙄

Funny… I actually tweeted that ABC sketch yesterday. “Great minds…” 😉 😀

Scummo is going to have something worst to be concerned about than his US pal & pedophile priests soon:

I was looking for a video I vaguely remembered from when Obama was POTUS. Found it… It’s hilarious! Both President Obama & Jake Tapper really give it to Trump & FOX. President Obama of course does it classy (and hilariously) all the way! C-SPAN keeps pans to Trump & FOX tables often & not even a smile! It’s wonderful. 😀 You may have seen it also… Anyway, here is the 19 minute vid. I plan to tweet it as a reminder later today.

A federal crime requires a Federal pardon and a state crime requires a state pardon. That’s why several of those convicted in Federal courts in the Mueller investigation are also being charged in state courts – so Trump’s pardon is not a “Get out of Jail Free” card.

The US really needs better mental health solutions and early intervention to prevent Fox News addiction. Until that happens we will still have mindless trolls and Republicans.

I assume that the next move will be to ban cats & terriers as they may be carrying plague because that worked so well in the Middle Ages. Then we can try arsenic and crushed emeralds – that didn’t work, but it sounded like a good idea at the time. These things are never truly eliminated, they are only beaten back until people forget or refuse to take reasonable precautions.

8 Kryten42 { 10.01.19 at 8:10 pm }

Thanks! I thought that was the case (RE: crimes). I also wasn’t sure that Justices in the USA required a Law degree. Turns out… In the USA, they don’t!🥺😕

Regarding the above CNN thread & the lunatic troll’s/trollops Manny Otiko posted this typically insane RW barbie-doll wannabe claiming god spoke to her! And my reply. 😈🤪🙄

https://twitter.com/Mannyotiko/status/1179192945263562752

Oh! And this one I tweeted earlier… You won’t be surprised, of course. 😉

https://twitter.com/Kryten_42/status/1179183387728207872

And my tweet about the recent Scummo & Trumpelstiltskin bromance meeting:

They don’t technically need to be lawyers because at the time the Constitution was written there was a notable lack of law schools and internship was the path to the legal profession. These days you won’t get nominated without a degree.

What in hell is a ninja angel. Ninjas tend to be followers of Shinto, not Baptists. This is a result of the decision to close all mental hospitals in the US and transfer responsibility to community clinics which were never built because of NIMBY (Not In My BackYard), as people claimed they would adversely affect property values.

Any Russian academic who wished to retain their job (not to mention their pulse) would certainly support chaos in the US and elsewhere as that is the policy of Vladimir Vladimirovich.

What in hell is in it for Scomo to expend any effort for Mango Donny. Trump takes and never gives. Ask any plumber in New York City – Trump doesn’t pay his bills and won’t honor a deal.

Enough of all that!! Time for a laugh (I promise, it’s worth it!) 😆

I have a hard time believing that Sarah Sanders would have a mouse as a pet … as a snack I can believe. 😈

They really need to get some cats for the White House. They are safer than poisons and universally accepted for rodent control. There is probably a surfeit of kittens at the local area shelters who could be trained for service by local foster homes. Free range mice are the best food for cats.

12 Kryten42 { 10.05.19 at 4:01 am }

SHS… 🤣👍🏾

True about kitties! And I agree. We have firld mice running around in Summer, Missie & Mr. Kitty loved it! Only difference was Missie just wanted to chase & play with them. Never saw her eat one. Big lazy Kitty surprised me the first time I saw him! He was suddenly the great Hunter! Fast & agile. Proved my belief his first love was “food”! *sigh* I miss them. 🙄😔

13 Bryan { 10.05.19 at 6:24 pm }

There is no way of knowing which cats will be mousers. The best I’ve seen were feral mommas. When it was time to wean there were no rodents left in the area – they got presented to the litter as “real cat food”.

The Brits have Larry at 10 Downing and Palmerston at Whitehall, not to mention the hoard at the Heritage in St, Petersburg. The US is trailing the world in cat-based anti-rodent systems. We are losing the race.
